How to use GENDER NEUTRAL pronouns~

Something i talked about in an earlier post titled “education about identities” is being gender neutral. There are people who do not identify as male or female. They identify as gender neutral. The pronouns for people who do not identify as any particular gender are ze and hir or they and them. Of course, this doesn’t apply for everyone who doesn’t identify with one gender or another, but many people do use there pronouns. I want to talk about how to use them, because some people aren’t sure how to. This is how they are used:

  • Hir jacket is right here. (Hir replaces him or her)
  • Where is ze? (Ze replaces he she)
  • Where are they? (Once again, they replaces him or her)
  • I’m going with them to the movie (Them replaces her or him)

I hope this gives a general idea of how to use gender neutral pronouns! If anyone has any expirience with gender neutral pronouns, comment below and let me know! Thanks (:
